Distinction Doors’ finance director, Vickie Brown, was recently invited to hear Prime Minister, David Cameron and Chancellor, George Osborne, speak at an Institute of Directors forum.
“I am on the Institute of Directors’ committee for the South Yorkshire region. It’s a great way to make sure that Distinction Doors has a good strategic insight in the region, not least because it gives us access to events like this one.”
David Cameron and George Osborne spoke for around 45 minutes, outlining their plans for the North of England generally and Yorkshire in particular. Vickie commented:
“It was very interesting to hear what they had to say. Amongst other things, we learned that the intention is to invest £6.4 billion in road and rail links in the region and build 20,000 new homes in Wakefield and York. We also discussed extensions of the free trade agreements that are currently being looked at for China and India.”
Distinction Doors claims to be the UK’s biggest composite door supplier and was recently included in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 and the top ten SME businesses in the Sheffield City Region.
